What wouldn’t I give to have friends like these: Sandy Evans (soprano and tenor sax), Carlos Villanueva (charango), Tarlochan Singh (tabla), George Doukas (bouzouki), Llew Kiek (baglama), Blagojce Dimitrievski (clarinet) and Steve Elphick (double bass). Kim Sanders describes his life as a speed bump “you start going somewhere and end up going somewhere completely different”. It’s also the title of the second trac, a beautiful interplay between two saxophones, tabla and bass.Kim, multi-instrumentalist, composer and arranger, plays tenor sax on this tune.Bent Grooves is an instrumental CD, beautifully measured and layered, with music inspired by Kim’s travel and work in Macedonia and Turkey.
